I am the Post-doctoral Research Associate of Building Services Engineering in the School of The Built Environment and Architecture. I gained a BSc degree in Environmental Engineering from North University of China, a MSc degree in Environmental and energy engineering from The University of Sheffield, a PhD degree in thermodynamics and heat transfer from London South Bank University. My research interests include heat transfer, thermodynamics, refrigeration, energy and hydrogen.

I am currently working on a research project funded by EPSRC & Innovate UK, H2-Heat: Thermal energy transport for heating and cooling with innovative hydrogen(H2) technologies. I have good skills in CFD modelling, and also skills in modelling different energy systems. I gained teaching experience as an hourly paid lecturer in passive design.
